This Website Shows You What Reading Is Like When You’re Dyslexic A website created last week is providing a fascinating look into what some forms of dyslexia look like, and the results are a must-see. The goal is for people without dyslexia to appreciate how hard it can be to read or do math for their peers who do. The website isn't an across-the-board view of what it's like to have dyslexia, but it's an eye-opening experience to see words and letters so distorted. “A friend who has dyslexia described to me how she experiences reading.
